- Mummy, Daddy, tell me about the Birds & Beasts.
- Well, son, it's like this...
Once a pun a Time, & it wasn't a very good time, it looked like Rain.
And soah, Giddy God told Noah to goah and build an Ark.
And Loah & behold, he did what he was bid.
And he had to get a move on like, since Time waits for no man or woman & the clouds were getting blacker & BLACKER.
But, never fear, for soon the boat was builded &, when the Big Bad Flood did come, they floated safely on the waters of the steadily rising tide.
And all the Animals from Aardvark to Zebra, 2 by 2, each one with a playmate, were all safe & warm & snug inside, & it was such jolly good fun on Noah's Ark, just like in a Yellow Submarine
And after the Dove & the Olive Branch & the Rainbow & all that sort of stuff, there was sunshine after the rain & all the water went down the drain...
And they all went forth & multiplied & 2 times 2 was 4 & 4 times 4 was sweet 16. They bred like Rabbits.
And all the flowers grew again, the birds sang & the bees made lots of lucky 4-leaved clover honey.
And they all lived hippety-hoppety Happily Ever After.
- Ah little man. Be quiet & go to sleep now. Night-Night. Sleep tight. Sweet Dreams. See you in the morning.
